You are very welcome here.

Holy Ground is a place to become more of who God made you to be.  We're a bunch of quirky people stumbling and striving to live more authentic, loving lives together in community.  We're all hungry to be loved and known, right?  At Holy Ground, everyone belongs.

Many of us are also hungry to explore deep questions...
>> about the meaning of life 
>> and about God
>> and about how we fit into the grand scheme of things.

Holy Ground is a church that's passionate about deep exploration of faith, spirituality, calling, purpose, and life with God.  We welcome you to join the conversation – doubt, curiosity, and conviction are all welcome.  We don't have all the answers, but we love good questions!

Who is welcome?  Holy Ground is an eclectic, progressive, LGBTQ-affirming community.  While lots of us are young adults, we joyfully welcome people of all ages.  We yearn to be as diverse as the neighborhood we inhabit, and we are doing our best to embody the incredible breadth and depth of love and acceptance that God revealed in and through Jesus.

Where and when?  Our main gathering happens on Sunday evenings at 5:00 PM, and we hope you'll come experience it soon.  It's a casual and friendly time to be together in community and to deepen our relationship with God.  We promise a warm (but not overbearing) welcome, tasty treats, and care for your kiddos.

 
 

More About Our Sunday Evening Worship Gatherings

Every Sunday at 5:00 PM, we meet one another on holy ground,  seeking an encounter with God, with our deepest selves, and with one another.  Our liturgies fully engage the mind, body, and spirit – honoring both ancient Christian traditions and contemporary expressions of faith.  We love participation, and lots of different people are involved in leading our services.  We creatively remix the practices of the church in ways that speak to our present-day realities and that challenge us to explore fresh, bold ways of living.  Our message is always inclusive, progressive, and relevant, empowering us to deepen our everyday discipleship and our commitment to becoming instigators of love and liberation.  Worship takes place in the chapel of Our Saviour's Lutheran Church (370 Junipero Avenue in Long Beach).
